Everton manager Allardyce dismisses exit claims


Chelsea's trip to Man City is the highlight of the weekend

"I'm here for as long as I'm winning football matches".

"The differences between us are we are not good enough away from home, but good enough at home".

Supporters' discontent may not sit well with Allardyce, who is now managing the seventh Premier League club of his career, but the former England manager knows that results will determine his future, as they will for every coach.

Providing an update to Everton's official website, Allardyce has hinted that the 27-year-old could yet be back in action come the start of 2018-19. Everton were five points above the relegation zone after David Unsworth's final game as caretaker and are now seven points clear.

"All speculation will go on, it happens". It hasn't only arrived with my tender. It is not something I want. It's something I have to remedy but it is a long-standing problem.

Coleman, meanwhile, is working his way back from a thigh injury picked up in the first half of the recent home win over Crystal Palace.

Allardyce claimed he had improved Everton's away form before last Saturday's trip to Watford but a fifth consecutive defeat equalled the club's worst run on the road for three years.

Allardyce also hit back at criticism of the brand of football Everton have played during his tenure.

"We know it is going to be a tough game, we know what to expect from Burnley".

Starsport revealed recently that Everton's majority owner Farhad Moshiri is drawing up a shortlist of potential candidates to replace Allardyce in the summer. So you have to deal with that and get better at it.
